should your hands be in front of the ball/club face at address, or should they be lined up with the ball/club face? I have a tendency to put them ahead. Would this be the cause for my wicked hook?

If so, that sounds more like a classice over-the-top kind of move, at the top of the backswing you might be casting out your arms and the clubhead is getting outside. You then start pulling the clubhead back in towards your body, and when going left, closing down the clubface. Clubhead comes in from right-to-left, the the clubface strikes the ball squarely, and voom, off to the left it goes.
I'd suggest concentrating that your arms aren't being thrown out away from your body.
I frequently have trouble with this because of the troubles with my right shoulder. But I've become a lot better at keeping my club on an inside path to the ball.
